of the council of economic advisors said the report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to heal from the wounds inflicted by the worst do downturn since the great depression. but the former ceo of general electric jack welch tweeted this. "unbelievable job numbers. these chicago guys will do anything, can't debate, so change numbers." the partisan pushing continues this morning. >> on friday we learned that the unemployment rate is now at a its lowest level since i took office. >> friday's jobs report shows that america still desperately needs jobs. yet the president's central and so sole proposal means fewer jobs. >> finally start doing something to acatually help the middle class get ahead. >> we can't afford four more years like the last four. falling incomes, rising prices, 23 million americans struggling for work. >> congress needs to step up and pass my plan to create a veterans job corps to help our returning heroes find work as firefighters, cops. a few weeks ago republicans in the senate voted that plan down. ask them why someone who fights for this country abro
. >> they are trying to suck the life blood out of the economy. >> vampires? really, mr. romney? this sucking up to the right wing went too far. nice try, moderate mitt. but we got the tape and we got you. water will work for a few seconds but if you're not drinking it, it's going to get dry again. i recommend biotene. all the biotene products like the oral rinse...the sprays have enzymes in them. the whole formulation just works very well. it leaves the mouth feeling fresh. if i'm happy with the results and my patients are happy with the results, i don't need to look any farther. that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... discovering once-daily levemir® flexpen. flexpen® is prefilled. doesn't need refrigeration for up to 42 days. no drawing from a vial. dial the exact dose. inject by pushing a button. flexpen® is insulin delivery... my way. levemir® (insulin detemir [rdna origin] injection) is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabe
the latest look into the u.s. economy, and the latest fuel for the fight over economic policy in the presidential campaign. it was the kind of news that president obama hoped for, just over a month before the election and two days after a sub-par debate outing. >> more americans entered the work force, more people are getting jobs. >> brown: indeed, september's unemployment rate, calculated by a survey of households, fell to 7.8%. that's the lowest since the president took office. a second survey, of businesses, showed that employers added a net of 114,000 jobs, and job gains for july and august were revised upward by 86,000 the president touted the numbers in a campaign stop at george mason university in fairfax, virginia. >> now, every month reminds us that we've still got too many of our friends and neighbors who are looking for work. there are too many middle class families that are still struggling to pay the bills. they were struggling long before the crisis hit. but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points.
economies because so many manufacturing and technology jobs are moving, whether it is a matter of costs for going where the trained work force is. we're fortunate to have to governors here to talk about how that change affects their jobs and what they're doing to jump- start their economies which compete with one another. this could be fun. let me start with our guest. governor hickenlooper. i knew that was going to happen. most of us here are pretty much aware of california's budget crisis. can you give us a quick briefing on where colorado is and what you are trying to do to turn things around? >> our budget is just as dressed as almost every state in the country. we have been working trying to control costs, get our pension funds in line, our state employees have not had a raise in four years. it has been difficult all the way around. the real challenge has been to try and turn public sentiment and get people to recognize it without a strong economy. it will not solve any of these problems. we have been relentless in what we did, the bottom up process and we asked them what they want
the economy and now we know why. it has gone from concern to fear. they are fearful of the rollout of obamacare and taxarmageddon. tax rates will go back where they were 12 years ago and i had a businessman today tell me with tears in his eyes the luncheon we sponsored that if obama gets reelected and he continues to force the rollout of obamacare he will have to shut down his business and he has been in business in this town -- i meant st. louis -- since 1957. because of all of the requirements that are going to be forced on business people. this is very real and people are veey fearful of what can happen if we don't get some more certainty in this economy. gerri: all of these topics will be part of the debate tonight. you have experience with the baiting. you did pretty well. what would be your advice to the two candidates who will be sparring with each other in a round table? they will be seated next to each other. >> here is what i predict. first of all, governor romney and representative brian have three things in common going into a debate. governor romney showed that these t
system for carbon if congress doesn't act. it's a massive tax that could cost the american economy more than half a trillion dollars a year. trillion with a t according to the national association of manufacturers. riley the former republican epa chief says something like that needs to be done. >> i think the epa has been led to a position where it's got to act. >> many disagree. among other things the epa cleanup operations of 40 years ago cost relatively little and most everyone benefits. in contrast an all out effort to lower the temperature of the planet assuming global warming is a real problem that humans can reverse would sheerl be the most complicated and expensive under taking in human history. >> the kinds of pollution in pittsburgh when i was growing up it's gone. i am grateful to that generation of the epa would help to make it happen. >> torpedo wood the epa latest mission reveals not a concern for the environment but a radical agenda that is less about the environment than most americans might image. as you will see later he discovered that in a college freshman dorm far f

's now the economy that has the e.u. facing one of its biggest crises yet. mounting debts, high unemployment, and austerity measures have triggered protests in some euro-zone nations. the economic woes have created deep rifts among countries using the joint currency, and raised questions about maintaining the euro and even their union. germany is the e.u.'s economic powerhouse. its chancellor, angela merkel, said the nobel peace prize shows the value of european unification. >> ( translated ): the euro is more than a currency because in the end it is foremost about the original idea, the idea of europe as a community of peace and values. >> suarez: but there were detractors, including those who said the e.u. hasn't dealt with an influx of immigrants. the director of amnesty international's branch that monitors the e.u. said he hopes the award would encourage the european union to be more open to refugees. >> suarez: the $1.2 million prize will be awarded in oslo on december 10. for a closer look at its successes and some of the ongoing challenges facing the e.u., i'm joined by a
's policies would hurt farmers. the governor talks about his five-point plan to fix the economy, something he says will help everyone from farmers to small businesses. >> i'll make sure our tax policies and our regulatory policies and healthcare, all these things come together to make it easier for small business to grow and thrive. america needs this new direction. we can't go on the path we've been on. we must restore america's strength and i will do it with your help. >> the obama campaign leveling a new attack at governor romney today over his plans to cut spending, specifically cut funding for pbs that would affect big bird. they have a new ad about it on today. >> bernie madoff, gut tons of greed and the evil genius to towered over him. one man has the guts to speak his name. >> big bird, big bird, big bird. >> it's me big bird. >> big yellow, a men as to our economy. mitt romney knows it's not wall street you have to worry about, it's sesame street. >> reporter: the republican national committee coming out with its own response, this graphic advertisement that quotes the count from ses

's still the economy. campaigning in virginia coal country, mitt romney tried to dig through the latest jobs numbers. to make the case, he has not hit just yet. >> fewer new jobs created this month than last month and the unemployment rate, as you know to this year, has come down very slowly. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> still, one of romney's key metrics on the president's handling of the economy went up in smoke when the nation's unemployment rate dipped below 8%. >> 88% unemployment for over, what 43 months. >> we still have unemployment above 8%. >> he told us to get us back to work and hold unemployment for 8%. >> month after month, after month. >> it's a political bar rising. proposing statement at the first presidential debate. >> we've had 43 straight months with unemployment above 8%. if i'm president, i will help create 12 million new jobs in this country with rising incomes. >> reporter: but romney notes the president has fallen short of estimates set by the own economic advis
. in all three battleground states, voters by double digits believe the economy is getting better compared to the numbers back in july. >> and mark halperin, that may be the big takeaway from this poll. the race is getting much closer. nobody can predict what's going to happen. if you look at a big friend, thoug trend, you've got to look at a lot of americans in these swing states are looking at the economy saying things are getting better. >> it's clearly a huge factor and yet, obviously, the debate from denver is also a huge factor. i think, you know, we look a lot at the margin of error, and these numbers aren't shifting all that much. what's key is in a lot of the states the president is below 50. that's a danger sign for him. the economy is getting better. it all goes back to the electoral college. you play with the numbers, look at these polls, romney still has to win six or seven or maybe eight of the battleground states in order to take this. and right now he's not there. but he's in a better position clearly than he was a week ago. the economy getting better has caused romney to s
. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country's come too far to turn back now. >> so it looks like unemployment is getting better, but the truth is if the same share of people were participating in the work force today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11%. that's the real reality of what's happening out there. >> you hear mitt romney pivoting talking about the real unemployment rate at 11%, so i -- i guess that's his pivot coming off the unemployment rate yesterday. randi, why does all this matter? as you mentioned off the top, the economy by far the number one issue with americans. take a look at this, from our cnn/orc international poll. we did it about a week ago before the first debate but i don't think it will change people's perceptions. by far the economy remains the top issue on the minds of americans. it's been that way since late 2007 when the u.s. economy went into a recession, and how do americans feel about which candida
in the u.s. economy? many of these small businesses talked about are anything but small. in order to avoid paying income taxes, they use sole propriet proprietorships and s-corporations. the owners file the profits on individual tax returns making the term small business about the number of owners rather than anything else. as a result, these small business owners include partners of hedge funds. also, donald trump. >> under governor romney's definition there are a bunch of millionaires and billionaires who are small businesses. donald trump is a small business. i know he doesn't like to think he's small anything, but it's how you define small businesses to get business income. >> this term is driving me nut, i have to be honest. it's become so central. everyone celebrates small business. it seems to me, a term in search of an actual definition. there's no agreed upon definition. it could mean anything. it's like saying workers. that includes hedge fund managers and janitors because they both work. it's not a useful concept. reverse engineered to score a political point. it begins as it's
